New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian has revealed the timeline for when the state will hit 70 per cent and 80 per cent full vaccination.
Ms Berejiklian said the Doherty Institute report advises when a population hits these thresholds it “triggers certain conditions”.
“Once you get to 70 per cent double doses it triggers certain conditions and, of course, once you get to 80 per cent of your adult population on double doses that means, obviously, that communities start to live with COVID in a real and meaningful way,” she said.
Ms Berejiklian said "on current projections, conservatively", New South Wales is expected to have 70 percent of its population fully vaccinated by the end of October and 80 per cent by mid-November.
She said she wanted to see the state hit six million vaccinations by the end of August and New South Wales is “doing very well”.
“I think we’re up to 4.7 million or 4.8 million by the end of today in terms of jabs, hopefully, we will get to five million early next week and then sprint towards six million by the end of August,” she said.
